Rabbis David, Itzik, and Menachem are arguing over whether a certain item of food is kosher or not. David and Menachem hold that the food is not kosher, and have a whole list of examples de’orayta and de’rabanan to back their viewpoint up. Itzik holds that the food is kosher, and has his own wealth of de’orayta and de’rabanan citations to fall back on.
The debate rages on for days, with no indication that they’ll ever reach a consensus. Finally, exhausted and at his wits’ end, Itzik shouts to the sky, “If I am right, let HaShem Himself declare it so!”
The rabbis’ mouths open wide as the clouds above part, a ray of light comes down from the Heavens, and a thundering voice calls out, “Rabbi Itzik is correct! The food is kosher and so can be eaten!”
Rabbi David shrugs and says, “Eh, so now it’s tied.”

Talk about something I didn’t know I wanted.
Alright, folks. I need your help. There is an 18-year-old woman who needs help funding her abortion. We’ve only got a couple of days to raise the money, so signal boost this if you can.
"I was approached today by my friend whose 18 year old sister is 4.5 months pregnant and in need of an abortion. The cost of the abortion is $3,200 and she needs to raise $2,200 for the abortion alone. Her abortion is this Thursday. So this is an emergency drive. She will have to drive 250 miles one way in order to get the abortion, so the figure of $2,200 does not cover gas or housing. Abortion access is under attack throughout the United States, and expecially in Texas. Help this person be able to access what should be a basic human right. Anything helps!"
$550 and one day left. Please
